The Greek Island of Rhodes was assaulted by invaders from Asia Minor, but defeated them against all odds. To celebrate their victory, the islanders decided to build a statue of the sun god Helios. Bronze statue making was traditional on the island, but this was to be the largest of all, the Colossus. We see the ingenious technologies employed to build it, but they were not sufficient to keep it from toppling soon after it was built. We also see the contrasting modern technologies used to keep standing America's most famous monument inspired by the Colossus, The Statue of Liberty. Aligns with McDougal Littell's World History: The Spread of Hellenistic Culture.
